We provide exemplary emergency medical care to the residents of River Edge and neighboring towns as a fully volunteer squad 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
The River Edge Volunteer Ambulance Service ("REVAS") was officially incorporated in 1949 and began its first 24 hour schedule on June 1st, 1949 at 7am. The organization was initially composed of forty three members with twenty nine actively taking calls to the 9,000 residents of the borough. Over 67 years later we are continuing to provide exemplary emergency medical care as a fully volunteer squad 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Currently there are thirty-five members who actively respond to the requests of the eleven thousand residents the Borough is currently home to. In the first year of service the Corps answered 230 calls compared to 2018 where we are averaging 650 calls a year. It is through the interest of new members, the dedication of veteran members, and the generous funds of the residents of River Edge and other outside donations that REVAS is able to provide this outstanding care.
